Dr. César Baena, Professor of Strategic Management in Kedge Business School, France, visited HELBUS for the first time this spring, delivering the unit Business Strategy.

“Before coming to Finland I was afraid that it would be too cold, but this year the weather was good. I found people extremely friendly and open to the world. People seem to enjoy themselves and are proud of their  city. The architecture is beautiful and I enjoyed the fact that Helsinki has a lot of open spaces and it is close to the sea. I enjoyed the café scene and the variety of restaurants. I found people to be entrepreneurial and that gives the city a good vibration,” he shares his impressions about Helsinki.

What was it like to teach in HELBUS?

“The students at HELBUS are younger than the ones I am used to teaching elsewhere. However, I found them to be very creative and entrepreneurial. They enjoy working with interactive and practical teaching methods. I learned a great deal from the students at HELBUS. They were always willing to share with me their knowledge of Finland, its culture and  economy. Thanks to them I made an interesting discovery, that of the Finnish videogame sector, one the most internationally competitive sectors of the country,”  César describes.
